But like i said before its normal at this this early stage until they get the cost down to produce them. It took them about 5 years to profit from ps3, but it should be much faster with ps4. if you compare the losses, ps4 is much better and thats where they want to be.

    But people just don't buy the console by itself. Let's see, we have some buying ps+, a game or two, the camera....so yeah i would say they are breaking even more or less

    lol again, you keep talking about these "other expenses", no one cares about those. Those are always going to be there. you don't understand how this stuff works i'm sorry, that's just the reality of it. you don't include "other" expenses like marketing because that's not part of the console's actual cost.

    we're talking about the actual cost of making the console.

    and about that link, let me find you more that disagree with yours:

    Microsoft's Xbox One Costs $90 More to Build Than Sony's PS4

    The DeanBeat: The Xbox One cost $471 to make. The PS4 costs $381

    and the links above are more substantiated because they are dependent on the hardware teardown, rather than "rumor".

    This is all fine and dandy but the Xbox will still struggle with 1080p regardless of how much money sony either makes, loses, or whatever else.

    i think the correct context is that it will struggle with 1080p or fps if they want it to be close to the PS4 version, that is, if the game is pushing the two consoles to begin with.

    Ummm, norhing there refutes anything substance said. If the ps4 costs more than wholesale they are making a loss on hardware.
    I'm pretty sure Sony themselves have said they are taking a mild loss on the console, it was in article about how they wont be taking the same hit as last gen.

    I think there has been enough of the "cost/profit" angle in this thread. F34R is right.....more posts are off-topic than on. Create a new thread on this if you want, otherwise, revisit previous posts and see if there is something related to the subject you want to talk about.

    Thanks.

    You guys are really good at killing conversations. I don't see why they can't continue...it wasn't just steered off-topic, the conversation started off of the original topic.

    Thought this article was bumping up now that Titanfall is out at 792P. And this is not from lack of trying. The dev has continuously has come up and made statements saying they will be actively looking at option for higher resolution if it was possible.

    Still it ended up 792p.

    Yup, but if it is same game. Same gameplay. Same everything, but better graphics? I would choose one with better graphics. It only enhances the experience.

    I don't know about that. The graphics would have to be a huge jump to enhance the experience and I'm not seeing that with the two consoles. Not even the PC versions of games are a huge jump. At least not yet.

    Well, in all fairness Titanfall is not a good indicator of the 'graphics' of next gen. The game is just flat out ugly.

    It actually is quite large jump. Not having to worry about screen tear. Or framedrop. or those annoying dam jaggies. Those are quite big difference in experience. Not being constantly being pestered would be huge improvement in experience.

    Also, you can tell clear difference from 720P to 1080P. I could see everything so much more clear in my 60 Inch LED TV. Even in movies, I see clear difference when I see 1080P movies to 720P.

    But it is running on Source Engine. One engine that is supposed to provide rock solid performance.

    Ys Source scales well for low end hardware, up until a couple of years ago Valve themselves supported Direct X 7 GPUs.

    I don't know what next gen games you've been playing because ive seen stuff like frame drops and jaggies on games. So far i can't say the jump is that large. Sure, you can see the difference between last gen and this one and it just a prettier more shiner versions. Gameplay is still the same and most games are still around 30FPS.
